Media Lies, Trump Increases Medicaid Spending

Today, Donald Trump released his 2018 Taxpayer First Budget. Like clockwork, the liberal media immediately proclaimed that Donald Trump broke his campaign promises not to cut Medicaid. One would expect liberal blogs like Mother Jones to deliberately lie about President Trump’s budget. However, even Forbes lied with an article today titled “Trump Budget Cuts Social Security And Medicaid, Breaking Major Promises”. Keep Reading

White House Press Corps Refuses To Report “Real News”

Today, during the White House Press Briefing, Sean Spicer started his portion of the press briefing highlighting the new trade agreement with China. This trade agreement is a major first step by Donald Trump in reducing the current trade imbalance between the two countries. Reducing the trade imbalance with China will have a positive economic impact on the lives of everyday Americans. The China trade deal allows American beef to be imported into China for the first time in 13 years. It also allows for the importation of Liquid Natural Gas. The financial sector will also benefit as American banks can now compete for China’s credit card processing business. While these three industries will benefit, Americans will also benefit.

All That Glisters: What The Media Miss In Trump’s Golden Reign

In Ovid’s account of Perseus’ rather maculate conception, King Acrisius, on learning that his grandson was destined to kill him, imprisons his daughter in a brazen tower. And just like every mythological figure who doesn’t understand that oracles are oracular, the king obliviously underestimates the weather as Jupiter impregnates the captive princess in a shower of gold. Besides teaching to never google “golden showers,” the myth reminds us of how the many in the media haven’t caught on to Trump’s look-over-here MO. Drapes and dimensions (be they inaugural or otherwise) serve as the trivial and alt-factitious glitter that engenders the results the President wants: a discredited press and a blackout of substance. In fact, to borrow from the myth of King Midas, the press often gilds otherwise useless material and starves themselves of actual substance. Trump often deploys the distraction pre-emptively. I was never a Twitter truther, believing that the then-candidate would purposefully plant grammatical errors in his tweets to increase circulation. But the great bigly v. big league debate of… Keep Reading

Media Silent While Millions March For Life

Media bias is on full display as huge crowds of pro-lifers gather in Washington D.C. for the March for Life against abortion, which has been receiving, unsurprisingly, little to no media coverage. On Friday, during the 44th annual March For Life, pro-life activists filled the national mall in Washington D.C. to March in solidarity with the unborn victims of abortion. Taking place on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision creating the ‘right’ to an abortion, the March for Life is the largest annual demonstration in Washington. Keep Reading

Not a Sanctuary From Lies

Colleges have become notorious for being the “thought police” when it comes to different (usually conservative) opinions on their campuses. Safe spaces, post-election accommodations like getting to pet puppies and play with Play-Doh, and even organized walkouts and protests are just some examples of how schools are enabling this behavior. Additionally, many students (a majority of which most likely participated in those previously mentioned activities) on these campuses have called for their university to become a “sanctuary campus.” What students mean when they say they want a “sanctuary campus” is that they want their institution to operate similarly to that of a “sanctuary city.” This means that students do not want to allow the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) onto campus without a warrant or allow the school to share immigration status information with them, along with not allowing police to enforce immigration law. On top of this, there are even demands for providing special financial aid to students with DACA status. Washington State University in Pullman has been no… Keep Reading

Of Course The Media Was Biased: The RNC Wasn’t a Disaster

Words I would use to describe the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland this past week: magical, historical, energetic, patriotic, peaceful. I was literally buzzing with excitement after the first night of the convention. Talk about an impactful experience — and it was only day one! Thousands of patriotic Americans converged on Cleveland to show their support for the Republican nominee. Between the young kids handing out free water to police on the streets, to the jovial laughs ringing through the convention halls, the air was light and the energy positive. I watched Americans of all socio-economic backgrounds embrace each other and fight for their idea of a better America. The first day of the Republican National Convention was an amazingly successful and impactful event for me. But you would never believe that was the case if you were not at the convention. I woke up Tuesday, excited to share my experiences with the world, only to be immediately disgusted by the rhetoric that was splashed across my twitter… Keep Reading
